Lelowhatsgood announces “Next Level” EP debut alongside Dee Traits

Celebrated and boundary busting international DJ, Lelewhatsgood is making his musical debut. Over the past few months, he has gently teased at new music, often working unreleased joints into his sets. This August, he announced the fruits of his labour as part of a 7-track joint EP, Next Level with Dee Traits. Of which, the first single, “Demon’s Kiss” will be available on digital streaming platforms on the 26th of August 2022.

Comprised by BlaqMystique (S’fundo L Gcaba) and Roy (Mpendulo Shangase), Dee Traits is a dynamic house music duo based in Durban, South Africa. Dee Traits and Lelowhatsgood have joined forces to conceive a new sound they refer to as “Is’qinsi”, a cross blend of Gqom and Electronic music. Dee Traits highlights the soundscape by “the heavy kick and bass”, creating a distinctive listening experience for their new genre.

Over the years, Lelowhatsgood’s contributions to the entertainment space have been recognised through his commitment to entrenching ballroom culture in South Africa’s eventing landscape. As an event curator and DJ, he’s enthralled grooves around the world, recently returning from an expedition of the German groove scene.

Describing his relationship with Gqom, Lelowhatsgood says, “For me, it means I can take a sound that’s very homegrown and infuse it with the inspirations I’ve been drawing from globally. Gqom is one genre that has been keeping steady as a DJ and to be able to release a project that takes it a step further also keeps me ahead of the curve.”
